ART CAREER
Following my graduation, from Manchester Polytechnic, I established a practice as a freelance textile designer, producing designs for the American home furnishings industry, trading as Decorative Design Studios. At my degree show, I was selected by The Design Council and awarded an exhibition space at Texprint. As a designer, I exhibited worldwide at home furnishing exhibitions, and travelled to the USA approximately six times a year, to meet with clients.
Exhibitions included:
Heimtextil, Frankfurt, Germany
Indigo, Lille, France
Surtex, New York, USA
Japantex, Tokyo, Japan
Gift Fair, Birmingham, UK

Following the birth of my third child in 2005, I closed my practice. In 2014, I returned to studying, taking classes at The Royal Drawing School, London. In 2016, I commenced study for a MA in painting at City and Guilds Art School.
